Since October 12, 2015, the prepaid REDcard (Redbird) can only be loaded at Target with cash. It can still be loaded online with a bank-issued debit card, up to $200/day and $1K/month.

Therefore, for MS (manufactured spending) Redbird is now considered dead. RIP!

Here's a cool map of REDcard availability:

https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=zaZeFBtuy5B8.kyYIaq26n5m4

Red means they charge $5 fee.
Green means they give the card with no fee.
Not sure when this is as of, but if it's updated, it's a good map. I'll throw it in the wiki

Do you already have Bluebird? Bec. they talked about verification on the phone, and that it would take 10 days to complete, but I told them that I'll just cancel and go to Target for a new one --  much quicker than 10 days.

not my issue... dont have one of the documents they need.

I am trying to load $$ onto my redcard from a credit card at home. It says it only works with a debit card.

1 Is that what everybody else is finding?
2 How do you get points charging a debit card?
3 Is a gift card considered a debit or a credit card? It would not allow me to load my card with a gift card either.
4 Can I charge a credit card in a store?

Thanks!!
